We spend episode after episode laughing, crying and occasionally screaming at the characters on our TV screens. We spend season after season with them, so much time, in fact, that we often know more about them than we do our own real-life friends. We've definitely rushed home, cancelled plans, called in sick (ahem) to catch up on the latest episode of our favourite TV programmes, so it's only right they have a whole award show dedicated just to them, and now, thanks to Instagram, we get to know even more about our BFF's and how they prep for their biggest night of the year.
Ever wondered where the stars get ready for the Emmys? Who mingles with who at the big bash? What's inside their makeup bag? Well, thanks to Instagram we have a sneak peek at all the goings on, from last minute prep a la Kelly Osbourne to an increasingly inebriated Sofia Vergara's pics, culminating in a burger shoved in her mouth and a poke at Miley Cyrus (well, if the rest of the world is then, why not join in!).
The 'Modern Family' cast, who took home the award for best Comedy Series were out in full force, onscreen banter seemingly translating into real life, with the show's Cam aka Eric Stonestreet jokingly appraising Sofia's bottom: "Emmy win and celebrating Sofia's booty" he wrote. And what's not to celebrate! Meanwhile, Heidi Klum, who was presenting at the award ceremony, shared the run up to the big night on her Instagram, taking followers through her getting ready process, her car ride and the award ceremony itself.
